Critical Errors in the Emergency Room
When people are sent to the emergency room, it is because they have suffered a serious and potentially life endangering injury. Doctors, nurses and staff of the emergency room must be on the highest alert to safeguard their patients.
Emergency room mistakes that can have devastating consequences include:
- Delays in getting a patient to a doctor
- Delays in diagnosing problems/performing necessary tests
- Delays in obtaining a specialist
- Delayed admission into the ICU
- Failure to timely perform surgery
- Failure to timely perform an MRI
These and other critical emergency room errors can have serious effects, including paralysis, death from internal bleeding, brain damage, loss of limb, organ damage and other catastrophic effects.
